Simple recipes and serving ideas for any occasion or setting.
Over a century ago we set in motion the tradition that led to Olsen Fish Company’s special Pickeled Herring recipe and process. We begin with Grade A Herring from the North Atlantic waters of Canada. We then process the Herring in an old fashioned method using real granulated sugar and natural distilled vinegar in our brine and finish off with fresh sliced onions and whole spices. The seasoned Herring is then packed-to-order in a vast assortment of retail or food service packages. Classic or traditional, we have the right package for you. Our strict processing methods not only preserve and ensure the quality and flavor of our products, but it also means that our Herring is all natural, certified Kosher (OU) and gluten-free. You can also count on Olsen’s Herring being the smart choice when considering ecologically sustainable seafood options. In addition, Olsen Fish Company Herring contains the highest amount of omega-3 possible—more than you can find in most natural food choices.
The Olsen Fish Company has long been recognized for quality Herring. It’s throughout these past decades that we’ve created a dedicated team and built strong relationships with the best vendors in the Herring industry. Our veteran staff takes pride in the work they do and the products we produce. Our suppliers, who have been working with us for years and years, share our commitment to providing Olsen Fish Company customers with the freshest and best tasting Herring available. We are open to any private label or store branding opportunities to help you achieve your goals. Together we are able to give you more packaging options, unparalleled service, and the highest quality Herring.
What's in a name? The name herring comes from the German word heer, meaning army. So huge were the schools of Atlantic herring, and so precise were their swimming formations, that the early Germanic people called them an army.
What is a herring? A herring is a beautifully marked blue-green and silver iridescent delicately flavored nutritious fish. It is the world's most plentiful fish, most commercially important fish, most widely consumed fish, and the most sought-after fish in the world's ocean.
